That is a true story, and one I used in my Dick Latvala post...

I figured it was probably in your DL post. Your essays usually so exhaustively include every detail I've ever read or heard that I can't keep track.

And to get back into the "firing," it really is amusing to think of the band listening back to what became Two from the Vault (as well as just about any other show from the era) and thinking "wow this sucks!" If you'd have told them then that in 40 years there would be a cult of people who have every excellent note played in 1968 memorized, catalogued on multiple formats from multiple transfers, and backed up on 5 hard drives, they'd have thought you were crazy. Now, when we look at that Summer 68 period, we think they're the crazy ones for not recording more. Or keeping better track of the recordings, anyway.
